Adams and Bennett barrel and finish chambering

I have been watching the prices at midway and brownells on these barrels. I have a. Little Mauser 93 action that I was thinking about chambering in 6.5x55. Adams and Bennett make a barrel in this chambering short head spaced and prethreaded to match this action. From what I have been able to read and talking to a local gunsmith as long as I can get my hands on a finishing reamer and go, no go gauges I should be able to screw on and head space this barrel. What I was wondering is if any one has done this with one of these barrels and is it truly in the realm of an at home work bench job project given the right tools? I have no illusions that you get what you pay for with these barrels, but any experiance any one has with these would be great and any precautions or good advice would be welcome. Thanks

How do you plan to finish ream? Do you have depth micrometers?

No just carefully with a hand powered reamer and go, no go gauges.

Re: Adams and Bennett barrel and finish chambering

you will also need a barrel vise and action wrench, they are pretty good barrels
